Obama Administration's Foreign Policy In Focus

As a presidential candidate, Barack Obama routinely made promises that he would "restore our moral standing in the world."

But, now that he occupies the White House, is his administration unveiling a new era in foreign policy? Are we likely to see a foreign policy overhaul or more continuity with the previous administration?

For insight, Tony Cox speaks with Laurie Brand — professor of international relations and director of the School of International Relations at USC — and Sandy Tolan, associate professor at USC's Annenberg School for Communication.
